Friday Favorites: Ice Cream

–by Donna Mitchell

Dear Sisters,

I just wanted you to know that Lago’s opened last Friday. We discovered this on Tuesday as we were driving south on Route 1 on our way to Home Depot and then Costco. Lago’s is far enough south that it is actually located in Rye, not Portsmouth, not too far south of the State Street Discount appliance store on Lafayette Road, but on the other side of the street.

As we were passing, my husband wondered aloud if Lago’s had opened yet, since it is seasonal. I looked carefully out my window (west side of the road) and saw the neon OPEN sign. I excitedly told him it was open and I was hungry. Since we had passed it, we turned around so that we could have our first outside-the-house ice cream of the season. Terry took a picture of me on his phone to send to some of our family and friends. I was in my red parka with the hood up since it was SNOWING.

Die-hard New Englanders and other rabid lovers of ice cream, you have been given notice. What you do with this information is up to you.

    Book Group, (the fourth Thursday) May 25th at Panera’s Restaurant, 6:30 pm. Laura Fox has chosen our book for May, God and the Afterlife, by Jeffrey Long.

    Based on the largest near-death experience study in history, involving 3,000 people from diverse backgrounds and religious traditions, including nonbelievers, God and the Afterlife presents startling evidence that a Supreme Being exists—and there is amazing consistency about what he is like.
    In his bestselling book Evidence of the Afterlife, Dr. Jeffrey Long showed us that there is a strong scientific case for life after death. Now, he goes further, revealing evidence that God is real. At the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, Dr. Long studied the stories of thousands of people who have journeyed to the afterlife. Though there are a wide variety of differences in how people experience NDEs—some see a bright light, others go through a tunnel, still others experience a review of their life—he discovered that many of the accounts shared a remarkably similar description of God; a Supreme Being who radiated love and grace.
    Expanding on his analysis begun in Evidence of the Afterlife, God and the Afterlife is the first intensive exploration of the people who have reported going to the frontier of heaven, met God, and have returned to share their journey. Groundbreaking and profound, it provides new insight into the human experience and expands our notions of mortality, offering possibility, hope, and comfort.

    All women invited,
    Nancy Bussey, 207-363-3725.
